It's been awhile since I wrote anything about my little ones from school. Yesterday was a bit of a trying day and I had one student who couldn't quite get it together during math stations. He had gotten upset when recess ended and his tears continued into the classroom and well into math time. This student rarely cries so many of my other students were distracted and perplexed with the crier. J, one of my little Kindergarteners, raises his hand and said, "Mrs. Reisfelt, I need a napkin." He got up from the table, got a tissue and came over to my crier and gently wiped his tears with the tissue. Then he whispered, "It's okay... you don't have to cry anymore. You can open your eyes now."


  1. Oh wow. So adorable. It's the simple little things isn't it? My little guy is 2.5 and I melt when I hear him saying "good bye" to things like his apple, our dog, his little coat rack, his books... It reminds you to really just slow down and breathe. Thanks for sharing this great little story :)

  2. Your son sounds precious! You are so right, my students are always a reminder to slow down and enjoy life!
